The Eiffel Tower: You Never Forget Your First(s)

6 March 2017 — 
It can’t possibly be cool, to still be gushing about my first sight of the Eiffel Tower six years and two return trips after my first first-sight, but the truth remains it’s one of my most vivid memories of my trip last month: looking out the window of the DIRECT2 bus from CDG and catching sight of the Eiffel Tower through the golden haze-bathed terrace of the Palais de Chaillot.

  • Lovely photos SGMT. My memories are far stronger of my second visit where I was really present and took it in. But perhaps it’s just because my first visit was forty years ago and my second only about eight years ago 🙂

    • Thanks Alison! Being present is really important, isn’t it? Those are the memories that really take root.

  • I just saw the Eiffel Tower last week and it is <3!!!
    Currently interning here in France and I always look at your posts for Ideas and more! 🙂

    • Oh wow, that is so cool! I wish you a great internship and a lovely stay in France. 🙂 What’s your favorite experience there so far?

  • I can never be tired looking at the Eiffel Tower. When I go to a city multiple times, I try to stay away from touristy places (such as the Statue of Liberty in New York), but after four times in Paris, I went back four times (and more) to Eiffel Tower.

    • Right? There’s something about it that makes you want to do a courtesy call every time… 🙂
